Anniversary Shoot: Louise & Aaron

We have really been loving all of the anniversary shoots we've been getting to do lately & even more so when the couple goes all out and does something really iconic & elegant! This sweet couple came all the way from England to do their one year anniversary photos with us in NYC (how amazing is that?!!!) and as soon as I saw Louise's one shoulder lace gown, I knew this was going to be one for the record books! Add to that Aaron looking sharp & so classic in a black tie tux and the perfect backdrop provided by New York herself, and this shoot was the stuff our little photographers' dreams are made of!! Enjoy!

Pursuit 31 Styled Shoot

While we were at the Pursuit 31 Conference last week (which was AMAZING as always, by the way! And I hear that next year's conference sold out in ONE day yesterday! But they are still taking spots on the wait list if you are interested in going next year!) Justin & I had the opportunity to teach both a lighting and a posing course. For the Posing one, we had the most amazing set up including this killer tent and a perfectly styled & beautiful couple. Like I usually end up doing, I spent most of the hour teaching and didn't get a chance to shoot a ton at all. But I was SO grateful that Justin was there and he could spend some more time shooting when I had to run off to the next thing. So basically what I'm telling you is that ALL of these gorgeous shots are his! :)

Also, if there are any of you reading this who would love to be able to work on both your lighting AND your posing (as well as a TON of other stuff that goes into shooting the wedding day) all in one place, we have announced the details for our LAST Walk Through a Wedding workshop of the year! It will be taking place in New Haven, CT on November 5th (with an optional 2nd day of portfolio reviews, post-processing & business stuff on the 6th) AND when you guys sign up this week using the code "EARLYBIRD" that will get you your seat for just $850 (normally $1000). We also have payment plans available, so just shoot me an email if you're interested in that. And you can head HERE to grab your spot (only 8 seats left!!)

And of course, a HUGE thanks to all of the awesome creatives who came together to put on this shoot!!

Our couple: Chelsea & Brock
Dress: Katherine Elizabeth Bridal (that amazing dress was custom made by her!!)
Hair & Makeup: Brushworx
Styling: Juli Vaughn
Design: The Style Stork

Deanna & Matt Maternity Shoot

Happy Monday!!

And do we have just the thing to kick this week off right!! A while back we were contacted by Deanna to see if we would ever consider doing a maternity shoot for her & her husband Matt. She said that she had always wished that she would have been able to have us there with them for their wedding & that this was the next best thing. Now, how am I supposed to say no to THAT! ? :) Normally, we do tend to just focus in exclusively on "couples" with engagement shoots, weddings & anniversary shoots. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that our version of a maternity shoot could be just that: a focus on a couple who happen to be starting a very big, exciting new stage in their lives! And as long as we kept it about that and focused on their interaction and excitement, who they are together & who they are going to be as a family, then it could still fit very much with our style and what we love shooting! So we said yes!

And y'know what...I LOVED it!

I already knew that I loved shooting anniversary sessions because it shows what a love has grown into. And I think you just see that even more when a man is looking at a woman who is about to be the mother of his child. It's a deeper love. An awed love. A love that deserves capturing.

These two are due next month with a baby girl, in the same month when they will also be moving into a new house. So BIG things on the horizon! And it was just such an honor to capture them right now, right here, right before life changes forever for the better.

Deanna & Matt, we had the best time with you guys! We wish you a lifetime of happiness!
